The original Lyon Outpost was built over a dam near the ghoul-infested Forest Marsh township. Unfortunately, it was quite buggy, either because of its attachment to Forest Marsh or its proximity to Oberland Station or for any of a hundred reasons. After multiple attempts to fix it, I destroyed Old Lyon and murdered most of the annoying settlers. Some got away. May they perish in some ignominious fashion.
Anyway, I started New Lyon a little bit southwest of Vault 81, thinking this site might be less affected by glitches. So far, the three settlers who showed up have refused to use the nice beds I provided, preferring to stand in the market all night, staring at the nearby overpass. At first, I was upset because I had made certain that pathing and bed access were 100% functional. Then I no longer cared. Maybe there’s something wrong with the Conquest mod that’s letting me build in these weird places. Maybe I have too many settlements. Whatever. I made the settlement. They can fix it themselves.
As usual, New Lyon is an ugly place because I don’t believe the “lore” allows for many settlers with sophisticated building abilities or access to good materials. In “real life,” they would have few tools, primitive carpentry skills, and only the junk they could scavenge from nearby towns. The result would be functional but rickety-looking villages. I won’t try to explain how they get hold of nuclear generators or high-powered defense turrets. Anyway, here are the pictures without interstitial commentary:
